“When we learn how to pay attention in a particular way, everything goes better.”

Today’s Excerpt: Distractions

When is it hard for you to focus?

Sometimes we think we can multitask and do several things at once. Multiple screens, constant stream of social media, and relentless notifications— these conditions actually work against focus.

Try this: For a quick demonstration of how inefficient multitasking can be, write down the alphabet as quickly as you can for 15 seconds. Then, do the same thing while singing “Happy Birthday” or “Row, Row, Row Your Boat.” Notice the difference in productivity.
